Excerpt: It seems for at least the next few weeks the large focus on the video card market is going to be the new mid-range offerings from both AMD and NVIDIA that hit at around the $150 mark, which is definitely a key price point for companies, as it's an area where most the sales happen.
Excerpt: The other day we checked out the MSI GTX 650 1GB Power Edition and today we look at the last piece of the puzzle when it comes to the main GTX 600 series and that comes in the form of the MSI GTX 650 Ti 1GB Power Edition.
Excerpt: These low-end $100 video cards aren't the most exciting to look at, but no one can deny the importance of them as we know not everyone games at 2560 x 1600, runs AA and AF and doesn't want to spend over $400. So with that said it's time to check out the new lower end NVIDIA GEFORCE model, the GTX 650.
Summary: NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 650 Ti offers much better performance than the normal GTX 650. The GTX 650 uses GK107 silicon, whereas the GTX 650 Ti uses GK106 silicon, which is also used on the GTX 660. This change makes the card 30% faster than GTX 650, which is still much slower than the GTX 660.
Pros: Extremely quiet, Very low power consumption, Overclocked out of the box, Good overclocking potential, Low temperatures, Support for PCI-Express 3.0 and DirectX 11.1, Support for NVIDIA CUDA & PhysX
Cons: Memory not overclocked, No NVIDIA GPU Boost, No support for SLI
Excerpt: Only last month we were sounding a lament for the graphics cards market of 2013, suggesting that the heavyweight Titan might be the last significant graphics card release for some time. From a purely technological point of view, that might be true, but the continued pursuit of more frames per second for your pound has driven both AMD and nVidia to unleash new products in the same month.
Summary: Det lykkedes for AMD, at pisse NVIDIA af, ved at kaste HD7790 på markedet. Det har betydet at NVIDIA nu har smidt en pumpet udgave af GTX650Ti på markedet. GTX650Ti Boost er et meget kraftigt grafikkort, hvertfald i sin klasse. Og jeg må sige, GTX650Ti Boost har trumlet 7790 fuldstændig ned. Kortet har ikke fået en fair chance, og må tage sig til takke med kun at yde 90% af hvad GTX650Ti Boost kan.
